Arsenal star Bukayo Saka urged to make shock move if he wants to win trophies

Bukayo Saka has been told to leave Arsenal if he wants to add trophies to his career. 

Since making his debut for Arsenal’s first team under Unai Emery back in 2018, the Gunners’ academy graduate has been one of the standout performers for the North London club. 

Saka, 21, is now a fully fledged England international after a string of impressive performances earned him the right to be one of Gareth Southgate’s first picks. 

To date, Saka has one FA Cup and one FA Community Shield in his trophy cabinet, but he has been told by former England international, David James, to leave Arsenal for Manchester City if he wants to win more trophies.

James told GGRecon: “I do like what Mikel Arteta is doing at Arsenal and Bukayo Saka is a big part of that, I can, however, understand why players want to move.

“What's best for Bukayo? Well, if you want to be part of a revolution in a sense, then you should stay at Arsenal as they’re building something and they've not won the league for 18 years.

The former Liverpool and City man added: “You're part of a revolution if you can get Arsenal to compete for the Premier League title, but if you want trophies instantly, then you’re almost guaranteed it if you go to Manchester City.

“I believe he'd be a wonderful addition for Manchester City. I've got a lot of Arsenal friends, so I believe he should move to Manchester City.”

There have been rumours about Saka’s future at Arsenal after new contract negotiations have taken longer than expected. 

City, along with Liverpool are believed to be keeping tabs on the winger’s situation. However, Arteta is confident Saka will stay at the Emirates stadium. 

He said last month: “I am very confident that we as a club, Bukayo and his family and agent are all aligned. Now it’s about putting that on a piece of paper.” 

So far this season, Saka has made eight appearances across all competitions, scoring once and assisting four. Arsenal will be up against North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur this weekend as Premier League football returns.
